Glendive in Dawson County, Montana — The American West (Mountains)
August 18, 1912
Glendive was accustomed to ice jam flooding but, according to the Yellowstone Monitor, it was the city's first experience with flooding from a cloudburst.
Farmers reported little damage as grain had already been cut and threshing had already begun.
Silver Jackets brings together federal, state, and local agencies to collaborate in reducing flood risk. To learn more about Montana's flood history and how you can prepare your family visit flood risk.mt.gov/
